Bob Wills & The Texas Playboys Hall Of Fame (DCC) (1973)
Hall Of Fame (DCC)\nBob Wills & The Texas Playboys\n\nOriginally Released 1973\nDCC CD Edition Released April 4, 2000\n\nAMG EXPERT REVIEW: Hall of Fame collects 22 songs from Bob Wills & His Texas Playboy's Liberty years, and includes Billboard chart hits like "San Antonio Rose," "Stay a Little Longer," "Hang Your Head in Shame," "Bubbles in My Beer," and "Ida Red Likes the Boogie." A good collection of the group's late-'50s/early-'60s recordings. -- Heather Phares\n\nAmazon.com Editorial Review\nThis collection, originally a 1973 two-LP set, was among the first Bob Wills reissues to exploit the renewed interest in his music, drawing from his 1960-to-'63 recordings for Liberty Records. Despite the fact that Western swing's popularity had bottomed out during that era, Wills had his strongest Texas Playboy lineup in years, centered around veteran fiddler Joe Holley, steel guitarist Gene Crownover, and guitarist Leon Rausch. Of greater significance was the fact that he'd reunited with original vocalist Tommy Duncan, whom he'd fired in 1948. Though omitting Wills's final, honky-tonk-oriented hit singles with Liberty, the set offers up respectable remakes of 1930s and 1940s Wills favorites like "My Confession," "Boot Heel Rag," "Time Changes Everything," "Stay a Little Longer," "San Antonio Rose," and "Blues for Dixie." Wills and Duncan resumed their old patter as if they'd never stopped (Bob nearly breaks him up on "Bubbles in My Beer"). With excellent playing and a couple of rough-hewn Wills vocals, the set reflects the best of his autumnal years, before failing health and musical malaise set in. --Rich Kienzle \n\nAMAZON.COM CUSTOMER REVIEW\nONE OF THE BEST, July 18, 2000\nReviewer: Jim Manning (Garland, TX)\nOne of the first Bob Wills, albums I bought as a kid.
